IF anyone else is up early this morning like me. Then you can catch launch of the lower stage return testing.

    Hold at 90 seconds to launch.

    "During the terminal count engineers observed drift on one of the two thrust vector actuators on the second stage that would likely have caused an automatic abort. Engineers called a hold in order to take a closer look. SpaceX is scrubbed for today and we are now targeting launch on Jan. 9th at 5:09am ET."

    Also, I was reading Elon Musk's Reddit AMA, apparently the guy plays Kerbal Space Program. That made me actually LOL

    I don't know of a better way to develop an intuitive understanding of orbital mechanics.

    Yeah. I sat down at the laptop to watch it as my breakfast was warming up. It then got scrubbed. I had to console myself with a gorgeous sunrise over the Neosho river.

    IF I have learned anything from DayZ. It will be to hide in a pine tree when the zombies come. They are incapable of hitting you in there.  :cool
